Operation Jade Helm- Military trains for Martial Law in American South-West

black-helicopters-dallas

A couple months ago the DHS (Department of Homeland Security) and FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) stated that the number one threat to the United States is none other than its own citizenry. This isn’t some small group of spun out nuts or even groups of people that the government feels are too religious such as Waco Texas and The Branch Davidians. As far as Islam, they were not even mentioned in the report. Instead, huge swaths of American culture and people were listed as the most likely threat to our country. These were some of the groups listed; Christians, Home Schoolers, Members of the Tea Party, Constitutionalists, Preppers (people who can food), Militia and the terrorist group they are most concerned about is returning combat veterans of the United States of America.

As 22-25 veterans commit suicide every day and they struggle with any real medical care, they are thanked by dying while dealing with the VA (Veterans Administration) and then listed as the number one threat to their country. Lately, it has become crystal clear that it’s become a culture in the VA. The directors are willing participants in the scheduling schemes and shell games. When they’re not collecting bonuses, they are making fun of veteran’s committing suicide (See what’s her name….)

Moving right along, about a month later a reputable polling agency polled Americans and posed a simple, straight-forward question, What is the number one threat to America? The results were decisive loud and clear, The U.S. Government. The economy was second and Islamic terrorists a distant sixth in the poll results.

In the previous years leading up to the government listing its citizens as its number one threat, they just happened to pass out a few thousand MRAP Armored vehicles of War, along with all kinds of military surplus weapons systems and night fighting optics.

Then, in April of last year, the government stepped up its pace. They sent Federal SWAT teams to the State of Nevada where cattle were killed, women were assaulted, people were tased and the actions of a police state were right on the television and internet for the entire world to see. Fearing another Waco, Texas or Ruby Ridge, Idaho, people from all over the country responded to help Cliven Bundy and his family. The Federal SWAT teams and BLM finally lost their resolve and left, but only after shooting and running a lot of cattle to death and destroying a spring used for water.

This takes us to the next step, a joint military LEA (Law Enforcement Agencies) exercise. This exercise is called, “Operation Jade Helm.” It is slated to last eight weeks and cover seven states in the American Southwest; Texas and Utah being listed as Hostile States, New Mexico being mostly hostile, Arizona being mostly Friendly and California, Nevada and Colorado all being friendly states. This exercise is under the command of the American Military’s most elite forces, USASOC (United States Army Special Operations Command). USASOC released an outline of the exercise and the units that will be involved.

“We have Army Green Berets, Navy Seals, Marine Special Operations Command, the 82nd Airborne Division and we also have some of our inter-agency partners such as the DEA, FBI and the joint personnel recovery agency that will be working with us.”

As a combat veteran, I find the direction and tone of this administration very disconcerting to say the least. The wounded veterans are looked at with a clear disdain via the leadership at the VA. The ones that were not wounded, were looked at like an enemy and placed on Terror lists. While The United States takes Hezbollah and Iran off the Terrorist list, I find it very hard to even accept what is taking place right in front of everyone, but nonetheless it certainly is.

I do not see any situation that would call for American Elite Special Forces, Airborne combat units and operators to engage in Martial law in the United States.

Infographic: How to transform a corporate lie into a science “fact”

(NaturalNews) Whether it’s Big Tobacco, Big Food, Big Pharma or Big Biotech, the process of transforming a corporate lie into a science “fact” is always the same.

The infographic shown below describes the process we see over and over again as poison-pushing corporations infiltrate the media, science journals, medical schools and legislative agendas to twist the truth and harm the public.

This exact technique is what has been used to push a long list of poisons onto the public, including:

• Aspartame
• Glyphosate
• GMOs
• Mercury in vaccines
• Psychiatric drugs for children
• Mind-altering SSRI drugs
• Statin drugs
• Fluoride in public water
• DDT
• Sodium nitrate in processed meats
• Atrazine
• BPA

U.S. Army sending armored convoy 1,100 miles through Europe

(CNN)Eastern Europe, here comes the cavalry.

The U.S. Army says it will soon be sending armored Stryker vehicles on a 1,100-mile convoy through six European countries to show solidarity to allies in the wake of recent Russian actions in the Ukraine and Crimea that have Eastern Europe on edge.

The move was first reported Thursday in the military newspaper Stars and Stripes. U.S. Army Europe posted the Stripes story on its website on Friday.

The convoy is “a highly visible demonstration of U.S, commitment to its NATO allies and demonstrating NATO’s ability to move military forces freely across allied borders in close cooperation,” U.S. Army Europe spokesman Lt. Col. Craig Childs, said in a statement, according to the Stripes report.

The troops and vehicles involved will be moving from training exercises conducted as part of Operation Atlantic Resolve in Estonia, Lithuania and Poland, the report said. They’ll move through Latvia and the Czech Republic as they make their way to Vilseck, Germany, about a 40 miles drive from the Czech border.

The troops involved are from the 3rd Squadron, 2nd Cavalry Regiment, which are based at Rose Barracks in Vilseck, and they will be accompanied by the Army’s 12th Combat Aviation Brigade, which will provide aerial reconnaissance, the Stripes report said.

The move is unusual because long-distance movement of heavy military vehicles such as the 18-ton Strykers is usually done by rail.

The trek is being called a “Dragoon Ride,” after the unit’s nickname, the Dragoons. Troops will camp out along the route.

“For those participating in it, Dragoon Ride is a unique opportunity,” Stripes quoted Childs as saying. “Soldiers and their leaders will have numerous opportunities to engage with local communities along the route, deepen their appreciation for the cultural diversity within the alliance and enhance the relationships that are essential to building and maintaining mutual admiration, respect and trust among allied militaries.”

The convoy will be the latest in a series of displays the U.S. and its NATO allies have taken under Operation Atlantic Resolve, during which the U.S. “is demonstrating its continued commitment to collective security through a series of actions designed to reassure NATO allies and partners of America’s dedication to enduring peace and stability in the region, in light of the Russian intervention in Ukraine,” according to the Defense Department’s website.

The displays have come as close to 300 yards from the Russian border as U.S. Army Strykers participated in an independence day celebration in Nava, Estonia, last month.

Other recent actions include the Air Force’s movement of 12 A-10 Thunderbolt “tankbuster” attack jets to an air base in Germany and this month the placing of hundreds of tanks and military vehicles in Latvia, where they’ll soon be matched up with 3,000 troops from Fort Stewart, Georgia.

Tension with Russia extends to the air too. Adm. William Gortney, commander of the North American Aerospace Defense Command, told the Senate Armed Services Committee on Thursday that “this past year has marked a notable increase in Russian military assertiveness.”

Russian heavy bomber aircraft flew more patrols outside Russian airspace “than in any year since the Cold War,” though he did not offer a specific number. There have also been increased Russian air patrols across the coastlines of Europe.

Missouri ‘Constitutional Carry’ Would Eliminate CCW Requirements

A Missouri lawmaker has filed a bill that would allow any legal gun owner to carry a concealed weapon without a CCW permit, eliminating all criminal penalties associated with failing to obtain a permit for a concealed weapon.

Rep. Eric Burlison, a Springfield Republican, filed HB1250 last week. Burlison’s bill eliminates requirements to obtain a CCW permit before carrying a concealed weapon. Under current Missouri law, gun owners may legally “open carry” a weapon anywhere that does not expressly forbid the practice, but must obtain a CCW permit to carry their weapon in a concealed fashion, such as under a coat or in a purse.

“Right now we’re basically having people get a background check and training in order to put a piece of clothing over something,” Burlison told The Missouri Times. “Right now you can buy a gun and carry it, but you cannot conceal and carry it. The permit allows you to put clothing over a gun that you already have a constitutional right to carry.”

Missourians must currently undergo a background check through their local sheriff’s office and submit to brief gun training before legally carrying a concealed weapon in the state. Burlison likened the process to an arbitrary burden on a fundamental right, saying he’d originally crafted the bill a few years ago, but decided to offer it this year in light of the passage of Amendment 5 on the ballot in 2015.

Amendment 5 requires courts to apply a “strict scrutiny” analysis to gun-related regulation and states that gun ownership is an “inalienable right.”

Amendment 5 has already caused waves in Missouri. Earlier this month, a St. Louis judge ordered charges dropped against a suspect who was arrested after police received a tip that he was in illegal possession of a firearm. The suspect, Raymond Robinson, was a convicted felon.

A ruling issued by St. Louis Circuit Judge Robert Dierker states while Robinson has not been a “model citizen,” the state of Missouri has not presented a compelling governmental interest to deprive Robinson of that right and charge him with a crime. Burlison noted that the case was particularly ironic, given that Robinson’s previous felony charge was in 2003 for carrying a concealed weapon without a valid CCW permit.

Robinson’s case ignited opponents of the gun legislation, who said the ruling would allow for more felons to keep weapons.

“About a year ago, my office and others warned Sen. Kurt Schaefer and the Missouri General Assembly that a then-proposed Constitutional Amendment could raise new, deadly concerns for law-abiding citizens,” said Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker in a piece she penned for the Kansas City Star. “Now I’m disheartened to see that those warnings may be coming true.”

But Burlison said the case is indicative of Missouri’s odd contradiction in gun law. If Burlison’s bill had been law in 2003, Robinson would have not been in violation of the law, and wouldn’t have been a convicted felon when arrested earlier this year with a weapon. In fact, Robinson’s case may provide just the judicial basis Burlison needs to avoid passing his bill altogether.

“Depending on how this case continues to be decided, this bill may become unnecessary,” Burlison said, indicating that if courts rule that CCW requirements violate a constitutional right to possess a weapon, his bill would not be needed.

Democrats and gun control supporters howl that Burlison’s bill will allow more potentially dangerous people without adequate training to carry weapons.

“There’s pretty widespread support for background checks and basic training before someone can be issued a conceal carry license,” said Rep. Jon Carpenter, D-Kansas City. “I think those are common sense provisions we need to maintain. I think there should be background checks and a basic level of training across the board.”

But Burlison calls much of the objection a “false premise” and says it’s inaccurate to assume that a legal gun owner is “by-definition” unsafe. Criminals, Burlison said, will always have their weapons, and won’t care about the law. Democrats, on the other hand, see Burlison’s bill and increasing the accessibility of guns as inherently unsafe.

“While kids are being gunned down in our streets, it seems like the only solution House Republicans have is to throw more guns at the issue,” said Rep. Jeremy LaFaver, a Kansas City Democrat. “This is just another example of the extremist agenda that Missouri Republicans are pushing.”

Burlison says he’s gotten mixed responses on his bill. Some of his constituents, like the ones who have regularly asked him through social media to carry this very bill, have expressed gratitude. Others are concerned about public safety. Burlison chided the Kansas City Star for running an editorial referring to himself and his supporters as “gun nuts.”

“It’s hypocritical for a newspaper to use that kind of language,” Burlison said. “It’s also intellectually weak. Using intellectually weak, ad hominem arguments isn’t how a publication should be operating.”

Burlison, who is in his final term, has offered a handful of pieces of gun legislation before, including an effort early during his time in the legislature to lower the minimum eligible age for a CCW permit, and a now-infamous video in which Burlison took a gun control bill to a firing range and riddled it with bullets. The Springfield Republican is also mulling a potential run for the senate in 2016, something he said he hasn’t made up his mind on.

HB1250 has not yet been referred to committee, but Burlison said he’s hopeful the issue will come up following the legislative spring break next week.

ATF Director quits after failed banning of SS109 ammo

B. Todd Jones, the director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, announced he is stepping down Friday after nearly four years on the job.

His announcement comes following a controversial ATF proposal to ban certain bullets that could pierce bullet-proof vests and be fired from an AR-15 rifle. But public outcry and Congressional pressure led the agency to abandon its efforts.

“ATF employees are hard-working, dedicated individuals who serve the public to make our nation safer every day,” Mr. Jones said in a statement. “I have seen firsthand their extraordinary commitment to combating violent crime, ridding the streets of criminals, and leveraging all available resources to keep our communities safe.”

Attorney General Eric Holder called Mr. Jones “an exemplary leader, a consummate professional, and an outstanding public servant.”

“As a result of Todd’s leadership, ATF has built a proactive, creative and effective team that is well-prepared to drive the agency into the future,” Mr. Holder said.

Mr. Jones, 57, assumed acting directorship of the ATF in August 2011, faced with the responsibility of reforming the agency following the Fast and Furious gunwalking scandal that let U.S. government-bought weapons fall into the hands of Mexican drug cartels and led to the death of a U.S. Border Patrol agent.

Though tensions with conservative members of Congress continued, Mr. Jones was widely viewed at having been successful in reforming some parts of ATF culture, and in 2013 was confirmed by the Senate to become the director.

Mr. Jones is also a former Marine who was active during Operation Desert Storm.

The ATF announced that deputy director Thomas Brandon would serve as the acting director following Mr. Jones‘ departure. Mr. Brandon has been with the ATF since 1989.

Rep. Bob Goodlatte, Virginia Republican and chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said the agency “needs a change in leadership to repair its tarnished image.”

“Under [Mr. Jones‘] leadership, many of those responsible for Fast and Furious never faced any consequences for their actions,” Mr. Goodlatte said in a statement. “Jones was also the director when ATF conducted a series of disastrous store front sting operations where individuals with mental impairment were possibly exploited by ATF agents among other questionable tactics.”

Sen. Chuck Grassley, Iowa Republican and chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, echoed Mr. Goodlatte’s comments.

“There’s no question he took the reins of the ATF during a time of great turmoil following the Fast and Furious scandal, but it appears that he failed to address many of those problems,” Mr. Grassley said. “I look forward to seeing the ATF once again regain its footing in its own ranks and with the American people.”

Mr. Jones was the first director to be confirmed in the agency’s history since the position was changed in 2006 so that it required Senate approval.

But Carl Tobias, a law professor at the University of Richmond, said it’s unlikely President Obama would get another ATF director confirmed before he leaves office in 2016.

Oil is back in the doldrums as the IEA warns of glut

EA warns that the U.S. is going to run out of storage soon, at which point somebody, somewhere, is going to have to stop pumping.

Oil prices are tumbling back towards the six-year lows that they hit in January after more signs of the U.S. economy weakening and a new report suggesting that the rout at the end of last year still hasn’t had a meaningful impact on U.S. shale oil output.  

The Paris-based International Energy Agency said in its latest report on the global oil market that, although demand continued to pick up in February, it was more than met by supply, with supply from outside the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries rising by a particularly strong 1.4 million barrels a day in February, relative to a year ago.

Benchmark futures prices in the U.S. fell nearly two dollars a barrel in response to the survey, their sharpest fall in over two months.

It only came up for air.

 

The IEA highlighted in particular the strength of supply in North America. It has become a commonplace assumption that the sharp drop in oil prices in the second half of last year from over $110 a barrel to less than $50 would expose a lot of higher-cost producers in the U.S. and Canada. Declines in the Baker Hughes rig count, a favored indicator of the amount of drilling activity, had appeared to confirm those expectations, but the IEA said that even that had failed to dent North American output growth, at least so far. As a result, it revised upwards its predictions for North American supply this year.

Oil prices stopped falling at $44.33 a barrel in late January, as traders positioned for a rebound by buying cheaply on the spot market and squirreling away as much as possible in storage, so that they could sell it later at higher prices. The Energy Information Administration said earlier this week that crude stocks are at their highest level for this time of year in at least 80 years.

But that only means that the underlying market is still out of balance. The world is producing more oil than it is consuming. The IEA said that may soon change.

“U.S. stocks may soon test storage capacity limits. That would inevitably lead to renewed price weakness, which in turn could trigger the supply cuts that have so far remained elusive,” the agency said.

“Behind the façade of stability, the rebalancing triggered by the price collapse has yet to run its course, and it might be overly optimistic to expect it to proceed smoothly,” the IEA said in its report.

Since the IEA’s cut-off date, the American Petroleum Institute has issued two weekly reports suggesting that production in the U.S. is now, in fact, starting to weaken.

However, there are also signs that the demand pickup that was expected from a resurgent U.S. economy may also be slower to materialize. After a third straight set of disappointing monthly retail sales figures earlier this week, data out Friday showed U.S. producer prices lagging expectations while the closely-watched Michigan consumer sentiment survey also disappointed.

Straight-A College Student Kicked out Because He Was Homeschooled

With all this talk about mandatory vaccination legislation, a lot more parents are discussing homeschool as an option (while that option is even still available). Aside from that, more and more parents are asking how much propaganda do we really want to expose our children to on their path to adulthood, anyway? Add Common Core to make matters that much more ridiculous and more people are choosing homeschool as the best option for their child’s mind.

That being said, the story I’m about to discuss out of the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) shows the enormity of what homeschooling parents truly are up against in this country.

Let me back up just a bit by saying that yours truly dropped out of high school. I could wax on about how I regret missing my senior prom or that I’ve had a rough go in life without that piece of paper saying I put up with my high school experience for four whole years, but the truth is I don’t and I haven’t.

I went on to get three college degrees including a master’s degree and I’ve spent enough time critically analyzing the system to realize that, overall, a lot of it was pure excretment and a total waste of time. Not that any of us need pieces of paper to validate our intelligence or existence. On the flip side, I personally watched people mouth breathe their way through the mind-numbing curriculum at my high school, graduate with Ds, then go on to join the military or get corporate jobs or become mall cops, complete with helmet and segway, for example… people who couldn’t have passed a GED exam if they tried. But, nonetheless, high school is still the standard to live by.

Today, that school is experience is magnified. The propaganda we were subjected to back then (guns are scary and bad, support our troops with yellow ribbons no matter what, lawyers and doctors make the most money so go do that, abortion is good) is nooooothing compared to the level of establishment agenda indoctrination being piped into our children’s brains today, complete with a heaping pile of fear to ice the b.s. cake. It’s actually pretty horrifying and a write up of its own… but I digress.

Homeschool allows parents a shot at not subjecting their children to that, and something better, or at least different, than being “taught to the middle,” allowing their children much more room to actually learn something. However, the system, as they say, is not rigged in the favor of anyone who tries to think outside of it’s box.

Take the recent case of 22-year-old Jacob Berry from Morgantown, West Virginia. His parents opted to homeschool Berry and not too long ago he decided to attend West Virginia’s Bridgeport Junior College, enrolling last fall. After one half-time semester where he received A’s in both of his classes, it came to the campus president’s attention that Berry did not have an official high school diploma. Consequently, he was kicked out of college shortly thereafter.

Via HSLDA:

“Your homeschool diploma isn’t state recognized. We can’t mess with our federal funding by having people with unaccredited diplomas here,” she reportedly said. The president had Jacob called to the financial aid office after class and gave him one day to produce an “accredited” diploma.

The next day Jacob was called out of his lecture and attempted to explain again to the president that his diploma was valid. Ms. Stephens refused to listen and suggested he take the GED. When he attempted to attend his next class, the school sent him directly to Ms. Stephens who kicked him out and informed him that he was an intelligent young man who would do well on the GED.

“It was a shock,” said Jacob. “She signed the letter acknowledging that I had been homeschooled and then kicked me out. It hurts me that she would do that to me. I don’t want to be negative, but I do feel like it was discriminatory.”

It’d be one thing if he had just applied and they ignorantly turned Berry down, but the school already knew he was homeschooled and accepted his application and allowed him to enroll, then he was able to complete a whole semester, a semester in which he made dean’s list-level grades.

Jacob’s parents, Dr.  Nathan Berry and Mrs. Cynthia Berry, a woman who reportedly holds a lifetime teacher’s license in the state of Missouri, were also quite shocked, so they contacted HSLDA who attempted to contact the school. Association attorney Michael Donnelly sent a letter to the school’s president informing her that homeschool students self-certify when they complete a home education program, a process that is clearly noted in the federal funding guidelines, but the woman apparently refused to respond. It will likely take more legal action and more of this kid’s time wasted before he can move on with his life for her to do so. Why?

Because, like everything else in the United Corporations of America, it’s not about Berry’s education or helping him gain higher employment etc.; first and foremost, just like in the public schools his parents steered him clear of, it’s all about the funding.

Were it a gender, race, or sexual orientation case, one can only imagine that it would make headlines, prompt court cases and widespread cries of discrimination.

But who cries out for the homeschooled?

When did this group become so ostracized and shunned?

There’s a marked trend of super minds that have been taught in homes rather than mass education facilities. Many in America are aware of the sad state that schools have reached, of the decline in education standards, and in the fall of testing scores and general intelligence and aptitude in the public overall. It’s not as if anyone believes public schools are the pinnacle of learning…

Why then is there an insistence on processing every child through these fatally flawed institutions, and defending the indoctrination centers to the death?

It is obvious enough that homeschools are too closely related to independent thinkers and the continuation of the individuals, the very things that certain but obscure voices have vowed to eradicate.

Building one’s mind the old fashioned way will be increasingly treated the same way conscientious objectors to vaccines are, with the scorn of a system that wants everyone kept under total and utter control.

Keep watch, and stay vigilant.

Senator drops Oregon vaccine mandate bill

Sen. Elizabeth Steiner Hayward, a family physician who led the charge for strengthening Oregon’s school immunization law, will no longer pursue the legislation, a staffer said today.

Senate Bill 442, which has had one public hearing and attracted national attention, would have eliminated religious and philosophical exemptions from school shots. Only medical exemptions would have been allowed.  

Oregon’s nonmedical exemption rate for kindergartners is the nation’s highest, at 7 percent. It’s a number that has been steadily rising since 2000.

“After much careful consideration, Sen. Steiner Hayward has decided to no longer pursue this legislation,” the Beaverton Democrat’s chief of staff, Paige Spence, wrote in an email. “She is disappointed that the conversations have largely revolved around who is right or wrong about science and the benefits vs. risk of vaccines, rather than about the health and well-being of Oregon’s children.”

While the bill had strong support from public health and medical leaders, including Oregon Health & Science University, Oregon Medical Association and Providence Health & Services, a vocal group of parents who either delay or avoid vaccines for their children has been active in opposing the bill.

While many are concerned about vaccine safety, some opposed the bill on grounds of medical freedom and parental autonomy.

At one point, discredited researcher Andrew Wakefield, whose retracted study first raised the hypothesis that the measles, mumps, rubella vaccine might be associated with autism, planned on testifying before the Senate health care committee. Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who wrote a book about a mercury-containing preservative in some vaccines and suggests that it is associated with autism, visited Salem last week to lobby Oregon lawmakers.

Both Wakefield’s and Kennedy’s claims are not supported by science, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The “No on Senate Bill 442″ campaign also rallied Monday at the Capitol steps, attracting more than 150 people.

Meanwhile, a Portland blogger started an online campaign supporting SB 442 and gathered more than 1,400 signatures in one week.

Sen. Tim Knopp, R-Bend, who led the opposition at the Legislature against SB 442, said letting the bill die is the “right thing to do.”

He said while the debate was focused on Oregon’s nonmedical exemption rate, he wanted to distinguish that figure from the vaccination rate. He said because exemptions don’t necessarily mean children included in that statistic are completely unvaccinated, there doesn’t seem to be an emergency.

“Ultimately, we probably need to review whether or not Oregon needs a constitutional amendment to make sure parents are in control of their kids’ health care,” Knopp said.

Portland pediatrician and Children’s Health Alliance’s medical director Dr. Jay Rosenbloom said while he was disappointed by how the debate around the legislation unfolded in Oregon, it wasn’t atypical.

The vocal minority is loud and organized, while the majority tends to stay silent, he said. But legislators should remain focused on public health and vote based on sound science, he said.

“Mississippi and West Virginia have proved to us that legislation like this can work,” Rosenbloom said. “This wasn’t groundbreaking legislation. The problem lies in convincing legislators of what the science says about the safety of vaccines, rather than having this be a debate amongst constituents.

“Scientific facts are not established based on a popular vote. This is not an opinion vote.”

Rosenbloom said while getting rid of nonmedical exemptions might not be a political possibility, he hopes there’s another way to get the rising underimmunization rates under control.

“What none of us want to see is a massive outbreak in a lowly vaccinated community that leads to death or disease,” Rosenbloom said. “We don’t want them to learn the hard way.”

Here is the rest of Spence’s statement regarding Steiner Hayward’s decision to back off SB 442:

“She strongly believes that making personal choices such as whether or not to vaccinate children are largely a matter of privacy, but – as with all matters of personal choice – we have to be certain that our choices don’t impinge on our neighbors’ health and well-being. She remains concerned about working to increase protections to people living with cancer, auto-immune disorders, and those who are simply too young to receive vaccines. She will continue to work hard to pursue legislation positively impacting all Oregonians, especially children.”

March 2015 Settlements in Vaccine Court: 117 Vaccine Injuries and Deaths

The Depart of Justice issues a report on vaccine injuries and deaths every quarter to the Advisory Commission on Childhood Vaccines (click on “Meeting Book PDF – 11 MB” and start reading at page 51.). This March 5, 2015 report states that there were 117 cases for vaccine injuries and deaths compensated from 11/16/2014 to 2/15/2015.

92 of the settlements were listed in the report, giving the name of the vaccines, the injury, and the amount of time the case was pending before settlement. Five of those settlements were for deaths linked to vaccines, with three deaths related to the flu shot. 73 of the 92 settlements were for injuries and deaths due to the flu shot, and the majority of flu shot injuries were for Guillain-Barré Syndrome.

These quarterly reports on vaccine injuries and death settlements from the U.S. vaccine court are seldom, if ever, reported in the mainstream media.  Here is the March 5, 2015 report:

DOJ-report-vaccine-injuries-deaths-march-2015-1DOJ-report-vaccine-injuries-deaths-march-2015-2DOJ-report-vaccine-injuries-deaths-march-2015-3DOJ-report-vaccine-injuries-deaths-march-2015-4DOJ-report-vaccine-injuries-deaths-march-2015-5DOJ-report-vaccine-injuries-deaths-march-2015-6DOJ-report-vaccine-injuries-deaths-march-2015-7DOJ-report-vaccine-injuries-deaths-march-2015-8DOJ-report-vaccine-injuries-deaths-march-2015-9DOJ-report-vaccine-injuries-deaths-march-2015-10

 Most of the U.S. Public is Unaware of the Vaccine Court

 

In November of 2014 the Government Accounting Office (GAO)  issued the first report on America’s “Vaccine Court,” known as the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP), in almost 15 years. Most citizens of the United States are not even aware that there is something called the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, and that if you suffer harm or death due to a vaccine, that you cannot sue the manufacturer of the vaccine, but you must sue the Federal Government and try to obtain compensation from the Vaccine Injury Compensation Trust Fund, which is funded by taxes paid on vaccines.

The November 2014 GAO report criticized the government for not making the public more aware that this program exists, and that there are funds available for vaccine injuries. Therefore, the settlements represented by vaccine injuries and deaths included in the DOJ report probably represent a small fraction of the actual vaccine injuries and deaths occurring in America today.

The Federal Vaccine Court is Not Helping Victims of Vaccine Injuries and Vaccine Deaths

But even for those families and individuals who are aware of the NVICP, fighting a legal battle that can take years to get access to the funds ensures that many who do file claims never get any of the funds reserved for vaccine injuries. That fund, the Vaccine Injury Compensation Trust Fund, is currently over $3.5 billion, largely because the U.S. Government refuses to even hear cases related to autism which would quickly deplete the fund. (See: How the Government has Earned $3.5 BILLION from the Claim that Vaccines Don’t Cause Autism.)

Lies, Fraud, and Corruption Mar U.S. Vaccine Policy

The unified message presented by the U.S. mainstream media and certain government agencies is that vaccines are safe.

This is a lie. Vaccines are dangerous. People are injured and killed by vaccines, and the quarterly reports from the DOJ, which probably reflects a very small percentage of the actual cases, clearly reflect that inherent danger.

So many people were being injured and killed by vaccines in the 1980s, that the pharmaceutical companies petitioned Congress to pass legislation giving them legal immunity from cases in civil court. They basically blackmailed Congress by threatening to get out of the vaccine business if such legislation was not passed.

Congress obliged in 1986, and today we have the NVICP, while new vaccines entering this “protected” and “guaranteed” market have soared. The largest purchaser of vaccines is the CDC, purchasing over $4 billion worth of vaccines a year.

In addition, the U.S. Government holds patents on some vaccines, and earns royalties on them, such as the Gardasil vaccine. Julie Gerberding was in charge of the CDC from 2002 to 2009, which includes the years the FDA approved Gardasil as a vaccine. Soon after she took over the CDC, she reportedly completely overhauled the agency’s organizational structure, and many of the CDC’s senior scientists and leaders either left or announced plans to leave. Some have claimed that almost all of the replacements Julie Gerberding appointed had ties to the vaccine industry.

Gerberding resigned from the CDC on January 20, 2009, and is now the president of Merck’s Vaccine division, a 5 billion dollar a year operation, and the supplier of the largest number of vaccines the CDC recommends (article here).

In 2014 Dr. William Thompson, a senior epidemiologist at the CDC who co-authored and published research on the MMR vaccine for the CDC back in 2004, made the decision to become a whistleblower and reveal data that was concealed by the CDC linking the MMR vaccine to autism among African American boys. In addition, Merck has been involved in a long federal lawsuit with allegations of fraud over the mumps portion of the MMR vaccine, in a case filed back in 2010 by two whistleblowers, virologists who worked for Merck. Merck has apparently tried hard to get this case thrown out of court, and keep this news out of the media, but late in 2014 a federal judge finally ruled that the case is to move forward.

Conclusion: Do Not Trust what the Government Says About Vaccines

The U.S. government has massive conflicts of interest where it concerns policies related to the vaccine industry. Before you make a potential life-changing decision for you or your children by agreeing to be vaccinated, do your own research. The government cannot be trusted on vaccine matters, and the mainstream media and many doctors are also not doing their own research related to the vaccine industry. Be informed and educated regarding vaccines, before you become a statistic among the vaccine injured and dead.

“Lab Mishap” Infects Macaques with “Potential Bioterror Bacteria”

Tests indicate a fifth monkey had been exposed to deadly bacteria that was somehow released from a high-security lab at the Tulane National Primate Research Center near New Orleans, according to an e-mail circulated among federal and state investigators. The monkey, like the others before it, was not part of an experiment. How the dangerous pathogen got out of its lab remains a mystery.

Preliminary tests on a sample taken from the monkey, a rhesus macaque known as IL88, indicates a possible infection with Burkholderia pseudomallei, the potential bioterror bacteria that was being used in vaccine development research elsewhere on the primate center’s 500-acre campus in Covington, La.

A confirmation test is being done by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Results are expected later this week or early next week, Tulane spokesman Michael Strecker said Tuesday evening.

Strecker said this fifth macaque, like the others that were confirmed as testing positive in recent weeks, had been in the facility’s veterinary hospital around the same time late last year. The hospital is the leading suspect for where the primates were exposed to the bacteria — which was supposed to be securely contained inside a laboratory located in another building on the sprawling campus.

Federal and state officials from multiple health, environmental, agriculture and homeland security agencies have spent weeks trying to determine how the bacteria got out of that secure biosafety level 3 lab – but have not yet determined what happened. Research with the bacteria has been halted as the investigation continues. The CDC has said there is no evidence of a public health threat. The bacteria can cause a potentially fatal disease called melioidosis in humans and animals, with a wide range of non-specific symptoms such as fever, headache and joint pain.
